When Charlie picks up the dogs she walks, the open front door behind her shows a short front lawn and a busy street; the exterior shot of her running down the front lawn as the dog owner waves goodbye from the door shows a much larger front lawn. See more »

First off, let me state that I am not a Jennifer Lopez fan. I think that she is pretty, but not glamorous, I really don't listen to her music and having seen a couple of her pervious movies, I think that when it comes to acting, she has all the range of a Daisy Air Rifle. She certainly can run the gaumet, from A all the way to B. Having said that, this was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while, running just behind FEVER PITCH. The film was crisp, just over 90 minutes, and well written. It reminded me a little of my relationship with my father in law, but that is another story. Overall, a good date movie, but not a "chick flick".
